Inktober is a drawing challenge started by illustrator Jake Parker in 2009. My first Inktober was in 2017 and I decided to join in the fun this year, as well!
This year, I did 31 character designs with Copic markers and Micron and Gelly Roll pens on 4″x 6″ cards. Additionally, I did 3 different character illustrations on my Wacom tablet in Photoshop for the AdobeMAX Inktober contest.
If you are looking to grow your audience, get your work seen, and meet new artists across the world, joining in existing social drawing challenges, like Inktober or MerMay, is a great way to increase your impressions (views) and following!
If you’re interested in owning one of these Inktober originals, I’ll be giving them away to Raven-level patrons, so please subscribe to my Patreon.
When her sweet dog passed, friend and past neighbor Carrie contacted me to commission a portrait of him that she could eventually have tattooed on her. Since I knew JD in life and he was one of my favorite neighbor dogs ever, she knew I would be the right choice to capture his spirit.

This pet portrait was commissioned by my longtime friend Adam, who wanted to see his dog Harry as the star of Singing in the Rain. After a few brief concepts, I worked up this fun and fantastical piece for him!
